Is it a day of the week ending in “y”? Yep, that means Representitive Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had another one of her earth-shaking ideas. Hang in to your seats and get ready for this one.
During an open session of Congress last week, discussion turned to budgetary savings. Ocasio-Cortez took the opportunity to outline a ridiculous plan to have firefighters become mailmen:
“Look, like, there isn’t a fire going on all day every day, right? Most of the time, the firemen and firewomen and firepersons are just sitting around waiting. I say, they should merge with the post office and deliver the mail. Then the postpeople can do better things with sorting and weighing and security and stuff. Is that awesome, or what? Let’s go get vanilla lattes.”
Although fairly harmless and stupid, an insidious idea lurks below the diatribe of Congress’s Strawberry Shortcake. The postal service has been hemorrhaging money for years thanks to Republican poison pen legislation aimed at damaging the postal employees union, one of the nation’s largest. With the Socialist Sippy-Cup’s plan, that union could merge with the Firefighter’s union, and since unions are themselves socialist, would result in more Democratic votes.
Is she clever or clever never? It’s always something with her. The woman can’t even be satisfied with a single last name.
